Agreed. Related news article: http://abcnews.go.com/Business/steve-jobs-death-billions-remain-private-topic/story?id=14682218

65% of his wealth comes from Pixar investments, not Apple - putting his money where his energy and beliefs were. I like this quote from the end of the article:

In 1993, Jobs told the Wall Street Journal: "Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me…Going to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful…that's what matters to me."
